Director of NextGen Ministries
Chris is a born and raised Houstonian. He attended Eisenhower High School and has been married to his high school sweetheart, Lisa, for over 30 years! Chris and Lisa have 3 sons, three daughters-in-law, four granddaughters, and two grandsons. Family is very important to him, and he uses that passion to build the NextGen Ministry at John Wesley. At age 12, he felt the first call into the ministry. In his early twenties, he accepted that call on his life and began volunteering as a youth director at which point he knew he had found his purpose.
Chris attended The College of Biblical Studies and then Liberty University, where he earned his BS in Religion with a dual minor in Christian Counseling and Biblical Studies. Now, with more than 30 years of student ministry under his belt, God has given him a mission in the NextGen Ministry. Chris' diverse experience with both small and large youth groups allows him to minister to students, kids, and families from all backgrounds.
Chris and Lisa's enjoyment of movies, camping, hiking, and biking is only trumped by their love of spending time with their family. Chris' life verse is John 3:30. I must decrease so that HE can increase. This reminds Chris that this life is not about him, but about serving God and others.
